Social Media – January 26, 2013

26 Jan

What you write or upload on your Facebook or Twitter is not private. And it will stay in the cyberspace forever. If you have Facebook or Twitter account, please do not have anything I list below:

  1. Your naked or near-naked picture,
  2. Vulgar language or threatening message to someone or something, especially anti-social messages,
  3. Racist comments, and
  4. Your picture or someone else supporting underage drinking consuming drugs.

Even you might have perfect SAT score, you are risking yourself not be admitted in some colleges. Academic record is the first thing admission officers will look at but if they detect some behavior or attitude problem in you, then you will be crossed out.

I hope you will never publish anything described above because they are not right, not because you want to get in your dream college. Be accountable what you say on web or any other form or shape! (including me and other adults, too)
